Workshop Details and Sign up
Workshops are held throughout the year at Nichol’s Cove Studio, just 10 minutes from Bobcaygeon. Weather permitting, courses are held outside under tents. During winter months participants have the additional option of snowshoeing, cross country skiing or kick sledding to the studio in the woods. Workshops will run with a minimum of three participants. Groups or individuals are welcome. Please check back regularly as new course dates are posted. Dates for groups of three or more can be arranged to suit the needs of the group.
Tools will be provided to be shared amongst participants. However, participants may prefer the convenience of having their own tools. A list of tools required will be provided under each workshop.
